We spent the month of August back in Bozeman. We were hoping the June rains would hold back some of the wildfires but no such luck. The air was often thick with smoke and the mountains frequently obscured. But it was still beautiful and we enjoyed more time with friends and family. Sienna is starting high school so I happily joined Jenny on a girls’ back-to-school shopping road trip to Salt Lake City — so fun! Before we knew it, Frank celebrated another birthday in Bozeman and it was time to head back to Milwaukee.
The mountains – first you see them, then you don’t!
Had lots of fun with Susan who visited from Milwaukee.
She even did a bridge jump!
Susan’s cousin was in town and we ran into her at Music on Main.

We spent a day at Salt Lake’s Lagoon amusement park.
Before and after views of the Colossus roller coaster.
A highlight for the girls was visiting the school where they filmed “High School Musical.”
We randomly ran into a guy who was happy to give us a tour of East High.
Jenny was in her happy place visiting Salt Lake City’s Whole Foods.

On our last night, Sienna made us dinner.
The day we left she had her first day of high school. Where does the time go?
